The capacity of the neocortex to process sensory stimuli relies on interactions of different cell types in dedicated networks consisting of millions of neurons and trillions of synaptic connections. These overwhelmingly complex interactions give rise to the selectivity of individual neurons for different sensory features and to a dynamic population code that can distinguish a myriad of sensory stimuli. We use a combination of imaging, electrophysiological and genetic methods in the mouse visual cortex to investigate how different neurons embedded in cortical circuits interact to represent sensory stimuli.
